i felt kind of sick watching that...i snooped around some of his other vids and he is now in Japan fighting this thing. There is no way he could show his face around there after all the YouTube vids.

 

My guess is a fish kingpin ordered the town to put him out of biz. He is lucky he did not get lynched on that pier.

Wow, it's nothing like I've ever seen before.

Even the accepted get life style checks.

Wife does all my business.

I'm the foolish tourist. Submerged but happy profile.

Randy and Cherry Anne owned the fishing boat .

 

They were NIOT fishing in Gingoog waters but they were hjacked by the navy and taken into Gingoog harbor under political orders.

 

After their boat was fired upon and impounded they took her away in dead of nite and filed charges. During that time they were shot at and had a politicaly sponsored team of murderers pursue them. The attorney they used was so disgusted by what happened that he offered his services free of charge.

 

Randy and Cherry ann then moved to Luzon to avoid being murdered and then back to the states.

 

The twist that caused the Navy such embarrasment was:

 

Randy was a former SEAL based at SUBIC. When the USA pulled out, Randy was to hand over his fast patrol boat to the Philippine navy as it was not worth taking home.His name is the last US skipper on the plate. The same vessel was the one that fired on his fishing boat. Randy advised them of who he was and what they had done using his old boat, result shame faced embarrassment.

 

The Politician behind this atrocity had at last time I heard from Randy had lien placed on property owned in the USA. None of which appears on this politicians SALN.

 

Perhaps a quite settlement for damages has now been agreed

They probably do not feel shame just anger they got caught pulling a fast one and didn't get their goodies.

 

The last I had heard was that they had taken the boat back. Glad to hear they did not come to harm over this.

I'm not surprised by this video. For reasons I obviously can't go into, our boat business was also harassed by local corrupt officials to the point we just gave up and sold the boat. I was also called a liar when I tried to explain we could not operate with the constant demands they made for corruption money. One official just laughed at me and said "I know you are rich. You should not complain about sharing the blessings". I'll never do business in the Phils again.

 

I'm waiting for the rose colored glasses crowd with their head in the sand to jump on here and defend the locals for what happened to this couple in Medina.

to understand how this works one has only to look at some industries and see who the owners are.... i found some businesses are almost always owned and the profits enjoyed by a few regardless of that fact that you want to provide more service for the end customers its just not going to happen.... industries that always seem to be off limits I think are. Schools.... in many cases Bars with entertainment,,, loan business,, pawn shops...private industry but with a government stream of customers.. smoke belching ,, businesses that involve natural resources... FISHING,, logging ,, mining.... /// not to say a foreigner who is married can not be involved in these type of businesses but that will be based more on married to who , ,,, this same system is world wide in many ways but in some countries its more out in the open ...

Sorry but it has been well documented not to take on local industries, so you only have your self to blame for any loss. As some one who makes money here, i would never buy a boat to make a living, how could you hide anything ? What ever you do here you need to keep a low profile.
